Localized Climate & Social Ecology
Keeping water onsite increases vegetation
Increase in local vegetation humidifies and cools the air in the summer months by way of evapo-transpiration from the surrounding soil and vegetation.
Shade provided by vegetation reduces in house temperatures and outside soil temperatures.
Cooler temperatures reduce the need for air cooling devices thus reducing energy demand and use.
Carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere because of increased vegetative growth.
The rate of climate change is reduced due to less greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
